Cheap Art

cheap art

Here’s an interesting new project by the folks of Krrb: Cheap Art features local classifieds dedicated to buying and selling artwork priced under $1,000. The idea is based off the Bread and Puppet Cheap Art Manifesto. The folks behind Cheap Art believe art should be available to everyone, not just the privileged. The ‘Cheap’ in ‘Cheap Art’ is not meant to degrade the value of art but rather celebrate the everyday consumption of it. They believe walls don’t need to be decorated with mass-produced prints from Ikea, but rather original works created by our neighbors. Check it out: buycheapart.com

Hashtag garden is a sculpture garden that you can hang on your wall. Think air plants, wood and moss. I have one floating over my computer at work and it makes me smile every time I look at it.

Blue Bird Woodcut Sculpture Prints

How incredibly wonderful are these blue bird woodcut sculpture prints? They are the brainchild of Nic Annette Miller. They are woodcuts printed onto mulberry paper and individually hand-colored, then glued onto 3/4″ thick plywood, sawed out and sanded. Totally hand-made in Brooklyn.

Custom Made Hand Mosaics by Anne Derian

Mosaics, Anne Derian

Anne Dérian, an architect by trade, is the force behind these beautiful mosaic art pieces. Originally from France, Anne now lives in Berlin and does mosaics on commission basis. In times where everything is about speed, I find incredible beauty in the slowness and thoughtfulness that the mosaic process represents. I’d hire her in a heart beat.

David Foster Wallace on Leadership

“A leader’s real “authority” is a power you voluntarily give him, and you grant him this authority not with resentment or resignation but happily.”

Love this felt-on-felt typographic illustration by Debbie Millman of David Foster Wallace’s timeless wisdom. The artwork is available as a print, with 100% of proceeds benefiting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
